The students have been suddenly been exposed to online teaching and learning due to the pandemic. Each child is unique and they learn differently at their own pace; some are visual learners, some learn effectively through listening and following, some through experiments and so on.
It is said that ‘Every dark cloud has a silver lining’,
which in this scenario can be attributed to the online teaching platforms which have come to our rescue. There are various mediums of instructions available on these platforms which allow teachers and pupils to share notes and play instructional videos.
These also allow the teacher to test the pupils effectively. The success of these teaching platforms is beyond praise as one may never have gauged the extent to which it can be used in a very systematic, streamlined manner which eases the process of learning for every child in the comfort of their homes. The various applications and their efficient usage, for today’s generation of pupils, is a child’s play, as they are very well versed with technology.
Our forte is teaching and these platforms have averted a major setback for the pupils through their role in the teaching-learning process. Every morning there is excitement in the air and the atmosphere is charged. The students look forward to learning something new, and the teacher feels equally empowered to make a difference. Teachers are learning the ropes of technology and the ways to effectively impart their module. They are attending webinars to crease out their apprehensions and inhibitions about using these mediums. I feel that online teaching has proven to be a blessing in these trying times.
